I am absolutely transported by Mr. Wiesner's children's books, and love that he chooses a word-less narrative with which to share his tales. And that the story's often center on things that occur or are seen in the sky. "Tuesday" begins one Tuesday night in a pond when all of the frogs & their lily pads are lifted from the water and begin to fly through the night sky, closer & closer to the city...and for the rest? You'll have to take my word for it!

This book is filled with rich illustrations. It is a good story to read to students when discussing imagination.

What happens during the night? These brave frogs ride their lily pads all through the community.

What a gem. A wordless picture book that could be placed with absurd tales; but it is just hilarious and darling. By the end of it, I was thinking: sure, for all I know this happened. I loved it.
The illustrations of the flying frogs and other curiosities are so much fun.

Well, that was an experience. Odd, yet imaginative.
